What is SoundGecko?
SoundGecko (www.SoundGecko.com) is a new app for the iPhone, it takes any website and converts the text to speech. It’s a great app for when you are out walking or driving to work and you don’t want to read a lot of text, so why not convert it to speech!
You can convert the website text to speech in two easy ways. Email the Link or use the Chrome Applet, Heres how to convert it:
Email the link:
Use the Chrome Applet
Email receipts can be sent to you to confirm your recordings, these will be sent to the account which you have signed up with. You can turn this service on or off within the preferences tab on the SoundGecko website.
SoundGecko does a really great job at encoding text to speech and sounds quiet natural too.
From reading the SoundGecko website, the service is currently free at the moment but they are developing more functions and later on, this will turn into a paid service. Even if it was a paid service, i would look at paying for it. I wish i had something which was this easy for me to use when i was at university, all those websites i had to read over and over to study for exams, this site would have come in handy. Now, i am always surfing the net as part of my job, this is going to make my job a lot easier!
